This is a book which seeks help those going through the process of mid-adolescence - either from the point of view of the adolescent or their families - it attends to the serious strains that may have to be borne if the picture portrayed is to have any realism. 'Youth culture' may idealize the adolescent and vilify parents; but, as we shall see, the paradoxical expectations placed on both adolescents and their parents arise from the creative tension between the desire to progress and the desire to regress as mid-adolescents consolidate the move out of childhood and prepare for adulthood. No easy task for the mid-adolescent and those responsible for them.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'It is perhaps easy to classify the years from 14 to 17 as representing a person's mid-adolescence, but these are extremely complex years in a youngster's life and certainly very difficult years for the parents. Describing the problems faced by both adolescent and parents is, however, quite a daunting challengefor anyone.'...There is a central philosophy uniting all the volumes in the You and Your Child Series. Each of the authors featured has published papers and books for the academic and clinical communities; the present volumes, however, are specifically aimed at parents. The intent is not to convince but to inform the reader. Rather than offering solutions, we are describing, explaining, and discussing the problems that parents meet while bringing up their children, from infancy through to adulthood.'- Dr A.H. Brafman, from his Series Editor's Foreword
